**Unfortunately (think of the movie "Dumb and Dumber") somehow it became 
fashionable to be unintelligent (even more than the previous 
anti-intellectual sentiment -- probably based on envy).  Many are 
intimidated by those who think -- and those who speak thoughtfully.  My 
students shy away from those who are "braniacs" geeks, nerds, or 
"eggheads".  However, it is a fact.  The major problem IMHO, is that 
there's a vast difference between wishing to b-b-q with someone -- and 
have that person represent me in a court of law, operate on me, or lead 
my country...
